Located one mile east of El Morro National Monument in El Morro, New Mexico, the El Morro RV Park & Cabins is your gateway to the land of Cibola and all it has to offer. When you stay at El Morro RV Park, you will be conveniently located to the beautiful natural attractions and rich heritage of the region. El Morro RV Park & Cabins is just a short drive from Grants, Ramah, and Zuni Pueblo, where you can find even more exciting activities to enhance your experience. The El Morro area is near many major landmarks and natural attractions, many of which have Native American legends connected to them. The Route 66 Historic Trail is a scenic byway that follows the area well and is a great way to see some of the most well preserved historic sites and towns, including Gallup, Ramah, and Grants.

The Ancient Way Cafe offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts for your convenience and enjoyment. The cafe features all the standards, including eggs to order, breakfast meat, hamburgers, salads, and chicken dishes, as well as specialty items. Enjoy Navajo Fry Bread, a Navajo taco, or special cheesecakes and chocolate tortes. We even have espresso!

While New Mexico is famous for its amazing natural beauty and ancient past, it is also becoming an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. With nearly 310 days of sunshine per year, the area offers all kinds of activities year-round, including mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking. Discover the fascination of Indian cultures, ancient ruins, lava flows, and towering mountains. There are arts & crafts festivals, art exhibitions, celebrations, workshops, morning yoga & tai chi, plays, musical concerts, authentic Native American Culture & Crafts and special ceremonies happening nearby (many right across the street at the Old School Gallery).

The peaceful surroundings and endless list of recreational and cultural opportunities make the El Morro RV Park & Cabins the ideal location to set up home base. El Morro RV Park is set up to allow you easy access to the cultural adventures, majestic mesas, and Indian ruins that make the region an enchanting place to visit. Whether you're a traveling family on a camping vacation, or refugees from the sweltering summer heat of southern Arizona, El Morro RV Park welcomes you to a quiet, friendly park amidst the scenic beauty of the Zuni Mountains near the Continental Divide in northwestern New Mexico. El Morro RV Park welcomes you to Indian Country!
